Broken Social Scene
Broken Social Scene
Canadian indie rock band formed in 1999 in Toronto, Ontario.

Locus Pocus
Locus Pocus need not proclaim their belief in the overwrought power of rock ‘n’ roll – they would much rather just write complex and catchy rock songs without explanation or apology. Formed in San Francisco in late 2016, the quintet’s music draws on the last seventy years of music history and jazz technique, folding psych, indie, pop, and punk into a seamless and contemporary sonic pastiche. Onstage, Locus Pocus conjure an uncontainable mania, whipping audiences into a frenzy and adding a fascinating layer of provocation and spectacle to their complex and prismatic songwriting. They released their debut self-titled EP in May 2017 – which, in retrospect, was something of a warning shot for their proper full-length debut. Said debut arrived a year later in the form of Locus Pocus, a lush and compulsively listenable collection of surrealistic rock numbers. Never one for resting on their laurels, the band maintains an active and lauded presence in the Bay Area music scene, supporting internationally touring acts and headlining venues throughout the region. In Locus Pocus’ world, the only direction is up. Expect to see (and hear) them playing and performing accordingly.
